It’s summer and its hot outside, the last thing you want to do is turn on the oven. Summer time in Florida is not summer key lime pie. My kids who inherited the love of all things tart from me loves key lime pie so they were thrilled to help me in the kitchen to make a no-bake version of key lime cheesecake that is creamy, sweet and refreshing.

This is the perfect summertime dessert, it won’t leave you feeling guilty and that the entire familia can enjoy it! It’s so easy you can prepare this with the kids. I also love that this dessert is made with Nestle La Lechera sweetened condensed milk as this was one of my favorite treats as a kid back in Guatemala. My mother and grandmother both used it all the time to make all of my favorite desserts like arroz con leche, flan de coco and even paletas (or popsicles)!
